Beyond the Classroom in the Curtis L. Gerrish School of Business
Outside of class, you have many ways to get involved in campus activities. Certain activities are either extensions of our academic programs or simply have an appeal to business students.
Sigma Beta Delta
Sigma Beta Delta is the internationally recognized business honor society. Students in the upper 20 percent of their class at the beginning of their third year of study are eligible to join the society, and they must demonstrate a prior commitment to the field of business. Students in Sigma Beta Delta perform community service, explore local media outlets, and conduct business-related projects.
